Menu Plan Monday - 18 July 2011
Menu Plan Monday and a lot of basics, which should make life easier! I did make it out to the grocery store with my list of sale items, but unfortunately there weren't many accompanying coupons… But I bought a ton of fruits, so that has been great to snack on! (What I didn't buy was toilet paper… We had to bring a tissue box into the bathroom yesterday evening. Whoops!). I've got a few projects that are done or in progress, so that should be up later this week, and the study will be painted this evening! I originally picked out a baby blue, but as time went on I doubted my choice… So I picked out a nice, sunny yellow to try to brighten up the basement room. We'll be buying a cheap Ikea desk for down there, and moving our futon down there for guests… In the next two months, we will be hosting my SIL for a night, my dad for a long weekend (yippee!) and my brother sometime in September (hooray!). Then looking forward from there, it's Monkey's birthday, my birthday, Thanksgiving, Husband's birthday, Christmas… I can't believe how packed the rest of the year will be. I have a feeling I will be reminding myself to slow down, breathe, and take things one week at a time.
And, as for one week at a time, here's this week:
- Monday: Cold sandwiches.
- Tuesday: Beef/veggie stir fry.
- Wednesday: Pastrami burgers.
- Thursday: Pasta something—either mac and cheese or pasta with red sauce.
- Friday: Burritos or Chips and Cheese.
- Saturday: Fast food or Chinese. (If we've been working on projects all day. Repeat a meal from earlier in the week if we haven't.)
- Sunday: Burgers.
